Expert Tips

  • Some types of apples are available year round and some are only available at specific times of the year. The peak season for apples will vary based on where the apples are harvested and the variety of apple.
  • Use your taste buds to determine which apples you like using. If you prefer tangy apples, you might like to use Granny Smith apples. If you like a sweeter apple, try Honeycrisp. Also feel free to mix up varieties in your recipes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Should I Look For When Buying Apples?

Buy apples that are brightly colored, free of bruises or damaged skin, and firm. When you gently press on an apple, make sure the skin isn't too soft. The skin should show no signs of shriveling.

How Should Apples Be Stored?

Apples are a hardy fruit and can be kept for months if stored properly. Apples do well in cold temperatures. If you store apples in the crisper section of your refrigerator, place a wet sponge or wet paper towel in the crisper to provide a little moisture. Since apples emit ethylene gas, keep them away from other fruits and vegetables and immediately remove apples that are starting to go bad.
